    Let me know how you get on, I'd be interested in one over the winter

    I'll do that. It'll get a rude awakening next week once I get my hands on a rear bale handler for a bit of balance.

    Any recommendations for tractor tyres? I'm not in the Michelen price bracket, hearing that Firestone are too soft, but I hear the parent company Bridgestone have launched their own brand of tractor tyres and might be good value.

    If the seat's wet, sit on yer hat, a cool head is better than a wet ar5e.

    Bridgestone have launched a new tyre recently. They are aimed at tractors that do a lot of roadwork, and have very wide lugs. But I heard someone who fitted them saying they grip well on the land. I think they are selling them at a good price at the moment to get them established. It would be worth pricing them anyway. I don't think Firestones are worth considering. Kleber are a good tyre. A bit on the expensive side, but they have cash back promotions a lot of the time. When you get the cash back, they aren't a whole lot dearer than BKT. BKT are well worth considering too......

    Put firestones on the front of the tractor here 1500 hours ago and by god are they wearing fast. They will do well to see 2500 hours. She has a front loader and does a lot of her work on a concrete yard to be fair.

    We had firestones on the front of a 141 mf with a loader, they were wore off before she hit 2000 hours.
    Wont be putting them again on a tractor
    We've Michelin on a 181 Massey that has 2200 hours up and they've barely worn, doing the same work as her predecessor


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,822 ✭✭✭Odelay


    From experience Michelin put a fair amount of work into developing their tires and testing wear to reduce it.

    LingLongs ;)

    In all honesty though the main party piece of Chinese car tyres is in general their hard wearing nature so I wonder has this trait crossed over to the agri side of things?

    No as the dribble bar is mounted to the chassis and axle underneath. Takes about 2 weeks to get it done. Brackets and all have to be welded in

    It's probably well worth going that route.....

    He seemed to have a few different designs of dribble bars at the ploughing. One of them had the inspection hatch of the tanker fitted to the rear of the dribble bar, which meant you can still access the inside of the tanker with the dribble bar attached. I thought it was a good idea.
